Austria suspends Schengen agreement, steps up border control, tells EU to clean up their refugee act.


Austria suspends Schengen agreement, steps up border control, tells EU to clean up their refugee act. (RT).

Vienna is radically changing its policy towards migrants and refugees, Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann told local media.
“All refugees must be controlled, economic migrants must be sent to the countries of their origin,” Faymann said in an interview with Austria’s Oesterreich newspaper, to be published on Sunday.
The government is implementing a strict monitoring system for asylum seekers, the chancellor said, adding that, just like in neighboring Germany, its border controls are being tightened, and repatriations of refugees are carried out.

“Anyone who arrives at our border is subject to control,” Faymann said. Consequently, the Schengen agreement on open borders is “temporarily cancelled” in Austria, the chancellor said.

If the EU does not manage to secure the external borders, Schengen as a whole is put into question...Then each country must control its national borders, Faymann told the newspaper, adding that if the bloc’s external borders are not secured in the near future, the whole EU [will be] in question.  Hmmm.........The end of Europe thanks to the refugees welcome policy.
